Reported: 3/14/2011 4:40:59 PM 16:40
Posted: 3/23/2011
Location: Prescott Valley, AZ
Shape: Fireball
Duration:30 minutes or so
2 orbs of fire that kept disappearing and reappearing

I was driving down from my apartment complex (The Terraces at Glassford Hill) and as I was driving down the hill toward The Copper Hills Car Wash, I saw two orange balls of light above the mountains (toward Jerome). Something about the way they were moving, the way they looked like a match-head flame (but in a perfect ball) caught my eye.

I pulled into the Copper Hills Car Wash parking lot (which was empty). I got out of my car and watched as they first turned in a direction heading toward Phoenix (I-17), weaving in and out of each others' path, then (as if they knew I was watching them) they started heading toward me- toward the direction of downtown Prescott. This was about 4 o'clock in the afternoon, the sun was still out, the sky was bright and completely cloudless, so I could see them perfectly.

They were nothing but balls of orange light, flickering and roiling in hue, two or three times bigger than a plane. They moved at a moderate pace, weaving (when I say that I mean, they weren't flying in a straight line), and as they passed overhead, one vanished completely (like a flame going out), then the other did, then one reappeared, then the other reappeared, then they each vanished completely.

I stared hard at them, but there wasn't even an outline of them- completely vanished.

I was shaking, in complete disbelief at what I'd just seen.

This was August, I know, but the exact day I can't be sure of, but 2007.

I don't do drugs, have no mental illness, and was completely sober.
